Long-time Icon developer Clinton Jeffery gave a presentation on this
topic at PyCon 2005:
Profiling and Visualizing Python Program Behavior
It was a delight for me to meet him there, since I was an Icon
programmer before Python existed ;-) He had some impressive
preliminary CPython visualization results, which required (a) a lot of
work, and (b) some modest changes to the core interpreter. Alas, I
haven't heard more about it since then. If I were you, I'd ask Dr.
Jeffery what became of that project.
